Life expectancy, at birth and at age 65, by sex, three-year average, Canada, provinces, territories, health regions and peer groups
Life expectancy is the number of years a person would be expected to live, starting from birth (for life expectancy at birth) or at age 65 (for life expectancy at age 65), on the basis of the mortality statistics for a given observation period. Life expectancy is a widely used indicator of the health of a population. Life expectancy measures quantity rather than quality of life.
